I am getting the feeling that I might be setting up a strange configuration of domains, websites, and redirects. It seems like I am doing exactly what the Apache Tutorial says not to in the section 'When (not) to use .htaccess files'. However, I cant find .htaccess in any higher directories.

Is this the preferred method?

  • http://shop.rid-engine.com redirects to https://shop.ride-engine.com - static app mounted on the unsecure url.
  • www.ride-engine.com redirects to ride-engine.com - static app mounted on the www. url

For now, I would like all traffic to be directed to the the secure shop subdomain. Do I create another app for a redirect and mount it on ride-engine.com, as well as modifying all the other .htaccess to point to https://shop.ride-engine.com?

Thank you
